The first residents of Shepparton’s Harmony Village were acknowledged last month at a celebration marking 10 years since the independent living units were opened.

At the Shepparton RSL on Friday, July 14, the milestone was celebrated by current residents, family, friends and staff.

Harmony Village was born from discussions identifying a necessity for increased services in aged care, especially for the Goulburn Valley’s prominent ethnic population.

The facility was opened on Thursday, December 11, operating as the multi-cultural hostel.

In 2005 it was renamed Harmony Village after partnering with Doutta Galla Aged Services to allow for expansion.

The aged-care facility will expand again soon, gaining a dementia wing and an upgrade to the community centre.
